Scam???



So I have my Nikon D60 posted on Craigslist and I got a response asking if it was still available. Ok - Fair question - Yes it is, I just posted it yesterday.

Then I get an email back from the potential buyer

"I am glad to read back from you,though i am new to this but i want to make an instant purchase and i want the item to be shipped to my son in oversea and i ill add $150 with the shipping cost for USPS delivery . but i can only make the payment via paypal so get back to me with your paypal account to make the payment soonest.
Hope to read back from you pretty soon .


Thanks."

Seems like a scam to me!!

Paypal can pull back funds right??

Yup, paypal will side with the buyer most times even if you have tracking info and insurance, I'd steer clear of this one bro.

My thoughts exactly.

This is what I replied to him with.

"Hi Peter,

While I appreciate that you would add $150, I'm afraid that I won't be shipping this with a paypal payment. Paypal payments can be revoked due to fraud and I'm not about to do that.

If you would like the camera, you can pick it up - with cash - and ship it yourself for a lot less than $150.

Deep"

You should waste his time a little bit.

Tell me, you will think about it, but will be away for 2 weeks.
Ask him to send the address and name of his son, and you'll look into the shipping charges in the mean time.

scammers are awesome smart these days.

as a rule of thumb if youre selling on craigslist, you should make it pick up only/cash in hand. if u want to do overseas, etc, use EBAY.

I got same thing when I was selling my samsung d900. It was ok phone. The funny thing is the person was from africa and asked me to ship it to his family. The scenerio was so funny because he was from the city that I visted on vacation as well as been to his town .In the cell-shop, They have better phones then we do in Canada. Amazing! He was like , I got the best one. lol For sure.
